New Years Resolutions 2012

2012 was a year of ups and downs. Both personal and artistically, there were a lot of highs and lows. My highest notes personally were seeing such great individual personalities emerge in my two children, Juliana and Nathan. The year ended in a low with my father's health going downhill. Artistically, I was challenged to make quality products with the time constraints of being a SAHM (stay at home mom).

As an artist, I am making a list of resolutions to promote my business and to satisfy my creative side.

1. Post more blog posts!

2. Do more things blog-worthy

3. Connect with local businesses to see if anyone needs help artistically

4. Re-connect with old contacts in NYC

5. Craft fairs and shows

6. More painting and prints ready for sale

7. Promote murals in both homes and businesses

8. Inspire my children a lifelong love of all things creative

9. Balance! Time and energy between marriage, children, my father's care, being a homemaker, and being a creative person. This is a challenging time in my life because finding/making time for creativity seems to be my least important priority.

10. Laugh, and breath

I'll end the year with a candid picture of me and my son Nathan.
